Steampunk Horse

Hello folks.  We have another challenge at One Stitch At A Time so how about popping over to see all the fabulous creations by the design team.

Challenge #190

Theme 'Anything Goes'

The sponsor this week is StitchyBear Digital Outlet with the complete set of images that the DT used in challenge #188, to win this prize you MUST use a digi from the StitchyBear Digital Outlet.  Runner up prize for winner using none store image is o$3 to spend at our store.  So everyone can win something.  The StitchyBear Digital Outlet has over 20 creators so it really is worth popping over, you are bound to find something you would to use :)

For this weeks design team creation it was Ali's turn to pick a digi for our team to work with from Coosty Crations and she chose the 'Steampunk Horse Digital Stamp and Paper Pack' for us <g>.

I used the papers from the digi pack for the background layer and second layer.  The second layer was then embossed with the X-Cut Tri-Boss Clocks folder, this was then attached to the background layer and edged with copper peel-off line stickers.  Next I printed the digi and coloured with ProMarkers and embossed the grey areas with clear embossing powders, just for that bit extra dimension.  I fussy cut the horse and attached to the card with foam tape.  The cogs were cut in bronze and black card and I used X-Cut labels to cut the label from copper card too, a Happy Birthday peel off was added to this.  To finish off I added a small coin charm with Queen Elizabeth's head on it (the closest I could get to Victoria lol), both this and the sentiment tag were attached with brown twine.  The insert for the card was created using the same two papers from the digi pack that I had used on the front of the card and some clipart of cogs.
